INNOVATHON | Ocean Edition
INNOVATHON is a technology marathon, conceived by CEiiA and the United Nations Global Compact, around challenges associated with the implementation of the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals, from which new products and services are developed for the sustainability of the planet.
In 2019, the Innovathon Ocean Edition focused on the sustainability of the oceans and sought to launch challenges that would lead to new ideas and workable solutions from a technical and operational point of view to ensure quality of life, productivity and improved sustainability in the oceans. The marathon begins with a sprint, where mixed teams of college students, a total of 120 young people, explore concepts and ideas, for 24 hours non-stop, with mentoring from experts and the involvement of local communities.
A global initiative developed in a number of countries, challenging the winners and facing each other in the final phase to be held during the next UN conferences about the Oceans, which is scheduled to happen in 2002, in Lisbon, Portugal.
